WCBS 880 Reporter Catherine Cioffi reports on the unusual case

“He’s been charged with bigamy and it’s a very odd crime to be charged with,” said Detective Sergeant Edward Finn.

Finn said there was no “big love” in this case, the second wife is the one who reported him to police.

“This was a case where a gentleman got married a second time before he was divorced from his first wife,” said Finn.
